Jake is 18, unemployed, unskilled and still lives with his parents. But Jake has a secret in his bedroom, under the carpet - a hopscotch court.
He can use it to take him to strange and wonderful worlds. It took him to his dragon. It helps him find missing people. It helped him find Jenny, his girlfriend.
Jake has strange powers but he doesn’t have a clue.
Jenny doesn’t think he’s weird - she likes weird. Princess Esmeralda of Salice thinks he should repay past mistakes. Evil wizards, kingdoms at war, chases, rescues, an offer he can’t refuse…
Jake is a wizard and his life is about to get interesting.
John's style of writing is highly entertaining and "Wizards" would make the perfect present for the older teenager in your life. In fact I will go so far as to say that you will probably be fighting over who gets to read it first! --Tiger Princess
This author has tremendous imagination coupled with an ability to make it come alive and seem realistic to his readers. If stars could be given on imagination alone, he would easily get a ten out of ten. --Paul Neto
